Webinar: EPA’s Brownfield Area-wide Pilot Program: Lessons Learned and Upcoming New Funding Opportunity

Wednesday, October 3, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM EDT


The NALGEP Brownfield Communities Network is pleased to announce an upcoming webinar on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Brownfield Area-wide Pilot Program.

EPA launched the Brownfield Area-wide Pilot Program in 2010 and provided grants and technical assistance to 23 pilot communities across the nation.  According to EPA, the program aims to “assist communities in responding to local brownfield challenges, particularly where multiple brownfield sites are in close proximity, connected by infrastructure, and overall limit the economic, environmental and social prosperity of their surroundings.”

The webinar will address the progress of the Area-wide program with a focus on lessons learned thus far, examples of successful pilots, and plans for the upcoming Request for Proposals for the next round of Area-wide pilot grants.  Speakers will include: 
  • Mathy Stanislaus, Assistant Administrator, U.S. EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response
  • Drew Curtis, Community Development Program Manager, Ironbound Community Corporation
